1. Listen. Social Media is not about you. Its about peoples relationships with you. Listen before you speak. 2. Get involved. Social Media is about conversations and building relationships. It takes effort. Dont just talk about yourself. Ask questions, engage people and link. Most of all, be inspiring. 3. Give up control. You cant control the conversation. If you want people to spread your message, you have to trust them. Listen. Inspire. Engage. Let go. 4. Be honest. You cant spin the truth with Social Media. Be open, honest and authentic in everything you say and do. 5. Think long term. Dont expect immediate, easily measurable results. It takes time to build trust and make connections.
